286pp. Octavo [21.5 cm] 1/4 green cloth with light green cloth covered boards and a gilt stamped title on the spine. Very good. The edges of the covers and spine are very lightly rubbed, and there is a minor lean to the spine. There is a "With compliments of Doubleday & Company, Inc." stamp on the front pastedown. The dust jacket is in very good condition, with light soiling and very subtle age-toning. There is a small, barely perceptible damp stain at the foot of the jacket's spine. The edges are just a tiny bit chipped and creased, and there is a 1/2 inch long closed tear in the bottom edge.
Tipped in title page, due to the publisher's recall. Stegner's love letter to the American West. Part autobiography, part travelogue, part literary criticism and part social history. Colberg #A20.1.a.
